Pharaoh by Wilbur Smith

I would also like to read Pharaoh, the latest exciting historical novel by Wilbur Smith. It is number six in the Ancient Egypt series and features an old Pharaoh Tamose who lies mortally wounded following his most recent battle. As a result The ancient city of Luxor is surrounded by enemies and All seems lost. Taita, ex-slave, advisor and general of Tamose’s armies, prepares for the enemy’s final, fatal push. He is never more ingenious than when all hope is dashed and this seems like Egypt’s most desperate hour. However the timely arrival of an old ally, turns the tied and the Egyptian army feasts upon its retreating foe. But upon his victorious return to Luxor, Taita is seized and branded a traitor. Tamose is dead and a poisonous new era has begun with The new Pharaoh Utteric’s ascension to the throne.

Pharaoh Utteric is young, weak and cruel, and feels threatened by Taita’s influence within the palace – especially his friendship with Utteric’s younger and worthier brother, Ramases. With Taita’s imprisonment, Ramases is forced to make a choice: help Taita escape and forsake his brother, or remain silent and condone Utteric’s tyranny. To a good man like Ramases, there is no choice. Taita must be set free, Utteric must be stopped and Egypt must be reclaimed. However this is easier said than done. The action goes From the glittering temples of Luxor to the Citadel of Sparta.
